my AIF application for University of Waterloo - software engineering
Reasons for choosing your program and UWaterloo.
(900 character limit)
My response :- What could give me the freedom to think, innovate and create something solely using my imagination and logical reasoning ...software was the answer. A set of well-organized characters shaping into a expedient program fascinated me. As I learned, my interest grew, firelocks, data integrity and cryptography revolved in my head. My ardent desire to build a world free from cybercrime made me read Ian Goldberg's work on cyber security and privacy.
Being renowned as the most innovative university in Canada for 26 successive years and having edified people like Peter Masak and David Cheriton, the University of Waterloo has been my dream destination. I wish to develop my skills and learn from erudite professors like Richard Cleve. Its co-op program and startup incubators like Velocity surely act as a push factor that indisputably make me choose the University of Waterloo over all the others.(920 characters)
Do give me suggestions to fit in the character limit without loosing the essence of my answer.
Should I include my programming knowledge as I do know languages like python and C# (and many more) or leave it for the answer which mentions "State your coding experience"?
